Ace Model Shop 1946 Ford Club Coupe, 1/24, 49R

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$42   

From 1949/1950. Although Ford is not mentioned, there is no mistaking that this is the 1949 Ford Club Coupe, from the all-new line of cars that saved the Ford Motor Company. This well designed prefabricated model is primarily wood with plastic wheels and tires and with some metal details and other metal parts. Features main wood parts that are all cut to profile (cut in two dimensions) or die cut and with other wood stock such as dowels. There are four excellent one-piece plastic wheels/tires with tread, a number of metal parts (like a steering wheel, hubcaps etc.), metal stock and even decals. There are excellent instructions with detailed building text, full size three view drawings, photos of the assembly process and a very nice photo of the built model. This kit is designed to be motorized; however, Ace did not include the motorizing parts with the car and they had to be purchased separately. Never started. Inventoried complete and includes decals and instructions. The famous modeler Gordon A. Babb founded Ace in 1942. Mr. Babb was born in 1897 and became a well-known builder and competitor in the model field with aircraft and cars. National 'how to' hobby magazines often carried details articles about how to build his designs. In his first year in business, he sold 1,800 jeep kits. By 1952 the line had greatly expanded the line to hot rods, T-rods, midgets, roadsters and much more and he was expecting to sell 600,000 model kits. Mr. Babs was famous for inventing the first gas-powered midget racer model which sparked a nation-wide building spree and speed competition. His 'Ace Model Shop' was in Pasadena, California and the mailing address was 60 N. San Gabriel Blvd. Later the address was simply Ace Products, Pasadena 8, California. Most solid 'display' kit producers in the 1940s simply provided plans and blocks of wood, maybe with a few accessories. Ace went well beyond that with all cut-out parts, fully formed wheels and even some metal parts, occasionally small plastic details and sometimes even decals. The plans went well beyond the average also, featuring numerous views (not just three), detail views for sub-assemblies and even text instructions. There were at least 15 car kits in the line and also many military vehicles which were popular kits in World War 2. We don't know what happened to Ace 'Models Of Merit' but the introduction of plastic kits (started by the Highway Pioneers) put an end to most wood kit production.

Airfix DH Comet 4B - Dan-Air Skyking Series, 1/144, 03170-7

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good-

$34   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split and shrunk with age and drawn the box top convex on the top side, left side and bottom. Very nicely detailed and molded kit from 1980 features clear windows, full landing gear and passenger boarding stairs. Includes colorful Dan-Air London decals. The initial Comet Is were in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lighting to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occurred. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause.

Aurora Martin B-26 Marauder - Famous Fighters Of All Nations, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$275   

Very rare first issue from the early 1950s. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, they planned a series of very large scale bombers. All kits released up to this time had been small. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a big sales success. This box art was done by Jim Cox and was only used for about one year, making it very rare. The kit has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, large clear stand, instructions and decals. The box has great color, four solid corners with no repairs, no creasing, no stains, fading or writing, no cardboard tears or rips, no price tags and no tape beyond the factory sealing tape. There is light general wear and please note that the box displays slightly better than the 'Excellent' grade but it is rated as such because there is light general wear not visible in the photo and a 1.5" x 3/8" factory tape tear on the top long side.
